On Friday, September 29, 2023 Two Way Street Coffee House Friday Night Concert Series presents Wattle & Daub.
Wattle & Daub’s authentic acoustic voice is rooted in their passion for the power of the folk music tradition. From the heart of the midwest, in northern Illinois, husband and wife singer-songwriters, Tim and Susan Mocarski are dedicated to keeping folk culture alive and kicking through participation, social commentary, and entertainment. Their debut album, “Struggles and Love,” was released in 2017, garnering immediate praise from folk radio hosts such as Nick Noble of the Folk Revival on WICN, FM who proclaimed it one of his “picks for top albums of 2017.” Released in April of 2020, “Middle of the Road” is Wattle & Daub’s second album, full of newly written songs that range from just plain fun to those focused on what it means to be human in these times, our loves and our experiences.
Tim (guitar, banjo, harmonica, vocals) met Susan (guitar, mandolin, vocals) back in 2013 listening to live local music at a bar in Kenosha, Wisconsin. A year later they started writing and performing together. Three years later, they got married – twice. The first time because they had to, the second because they wanted to, but that’s a whole other long story. Playing regularly in Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin, Tim and Susan have also toured the East Coast each of the last four years in the weeks leading up to the Newport Folk Festival where they are “Gold Star Open Stage Members,” according to curator, Chris Funk of The Decemberists, and in 2021 Wattle & Daub were thrilled to be official buskers at the Festival.
If you can’t join us in person, you can still tune in virtually to catch the show! To make your donation to Tim and Susan HERE or for more information visit www.twowaystreet.org.
